City of DeLand Holiday Lighting contest

The City of DeLand is excited to hold its first-ever residential holiday lighting contest!

The rules are simple: decorate your house for the holidays and share your address with us. We'll add you to our Google Map so people can take a look at your lights.

The winner of our contest, determined by our holiday committee, will receive a gift card to Lowe's, who is sponsoring this year's contest. 

Our top winner will also go head-to-head with the city of Orange City's top contest winner in a fan vote.

  • By entering the contest, you are agreeing to allow to have your address on a map which will be shared on social media for the community to view Christmas lights in the area.
